Effective immediately, American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) and its longstanding [insurance] partner ... have created an insurance plan for home birth coverage in all 50 states. This measure means that the 5,000+ members of ACNM will now be able to obtain coverage for home birth practice.

It would be great if this could be extended to Australia too!
